The medications you have tried and/or are on are for arthritis, and if you don't have arthritis then they won't help. How did they come up with the diagnosis of arthritis? MRI's, x'ray's, CT scans done?
The first thing that comes to mind is Fibromyalgia and if it is that you definitely need to be on other medications.
I do not know enough about
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, but you have some symptoms of that. There are others here that are very familiar with it, so they can help you with that.
I am certainly no Doctor and could be completely wrong with what your condition is....So please just take what I say as just trying to rule out other things.
What type of Doctor's have you seen? Have you seen a Pain Specialist?
If you've not had any diagnostic tests done, then I definitely think that is something that you need to do.
Have any of your Doctor's ever tried pain medications on you? That is something that should be tried.
If you can give us a little more info it would be helpful. I hope you get some answers soon as to what is going on. Please keep us posted!
